Hike Fundraising Support

Thank you for choosing to be part of the Hike for Lung Health! Your efforts have an important impact on air quality and people living with asthma, COPD, lung cancer, and other lung diseases.

Because Hike is a charity walk, below you’ll find a variety of resources to make fundraising as easy and FUN as possible.

Fundraising Toolkit

Check out the RHA Fundraising Toolkit, our comprehensive guide to making the most of your fundraising campaign and reaching your goal! Or download the Toolkit PDF.

Our toolkit provides step-by-step instructions for each of these key components:

  • Create a schedule for fundraising so that you can focus on event training.
  • Personalize your Fundraising Page to share your story. Email the link to your network to make it easy for them to give.
  • Make your own donation so people see how invested you are in healthy lungs and clean air.
  • Let others know why you are participating and ask for their support through social media.

You’ll see donations start to accumulate in no time.
